Catherine Sciurba, age 96, formerly of Elmhurst passed away Monday April 16, 2018. She was born in 1921, in Chicago, the daughter of Sebastian and Lucia Palmeri. Growing up in Chicago she met and married the love of her life Carl Sciurba in 1946. Catherine was a devoted wife, mother and homemaker. Carl followed his calling and founded his own tool & die business in 1947. Together they formed a union that lasted over 71 years until Carl’s passing on October 27, 2017 at the age of 99. Carl & Catherine shared a passion for travel and ventured to many places throughout the world in their early retirement years. These trips were much anticipated and brought enjoyment which included memories that lasted a lifetime. In addition, they spent many winters in Palm Springs, CA, where they considered the Coachella Valley area to be their 2nd home. While Carl & Catherine enjoyed their golden years traveling, they were most proud of their family. Together they had 6 children, 10 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. The family wishes to thank all those who cared for Catherine during her illness the past three months. We are very grateful to the nursing and physical therapy staffs at Lexington Health Care Center and the ICU and cardiac staffs at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital for their compassionate care.
